Camellia Sinensis, an unusual story

The Camellia Sinensis story begins with a humble teahouse back in 1998.  A shared passion for tea took us to the tea fields of Asia and beyond, developing our trade and solidifying friendships with the artisans that produce some of the World’s finest teas.  Over time our reputation for quality tea and teaware and our desire to share them with  experts and neophytes alike has spread around the globe. Thank you all for your precious support and curiosity.
